We had so much fun at our August Cute Card Class. We laughed, we ate, we created, and we laughed some more! This month we had a small group – several people were out of town or not feeling well. I am hoping to hold the August Cute Card Class again for those who missed it. As always, we made 6 cards (2 each of 3 designs).
The first card was made with the limited time Color Your Season Bundle. I knew that I wanted to make cards with a purple theme – good thing everyone at class loves purple just as much as me. To be honest, I really wasn’t in love with this set. I’m not really a flower person and looking at all of the images that’s all that I saw. I did however love the stitched layering shapes framelits.
The first card I made with it, I used white embossing power and used Water Color Pencil Assortment #2 using the Cajun Craze, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape. The second card I embossed the image with gold powder – and boy do I love the way it came out!
Our second card was made using the Love What You Do set and the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. My two favorite parts of this card is the Pearlized Dollies and the Blueberry Bushel ink.
The final card was made was a fun card using the Southern Serenade stamp set. We also used the new Gray Granite ink and card stock. We did stamp off the lace background image two to three times depending upon the look they wanted. We colored the flowers in with Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends (both dark and light) and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends (dark and light).
Don’t forget about all the August happenings!
